i bought this fish for the 2nd time. the first time, i dipped it in flour, egg, then bread crumbs and baked. it was really good. looking for another yummy way to prepare this fish. help?
Treat it like catfish. Using CL's recipes, either the blackened catfish method or there's one which is oven-fried with a crunchy cornmeal coating which is nice, too.
Here's a link to prior threads with ideas:

My girlfriend makes a recipe, the amounts are fairly flexible depending on how many fillets you make.
Mix dill (fresh or dried)to taste (about 1 tsp)
dijon mustard (2 tablespoons)
melted butter (I use about 1 Tablespoon)
2-3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Pour over fish in a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

I use tilapia in recipes calling for snapper.

snapper, flounder, just about any recipe for white fish will work. I make it with a miso glaze most often.

I love tilapia! Johnny Carino's has the most fabulous talapia recipe on their menu, that wouldn't be hard to recreate. The tilapia is served with a cream sauce with spinach and chopped jalapenos, served over angel hair pasta. Yum!
Something simple to do...pour some light Caeser dressing on it and bake it.

One good way to prepare tilapia that I really like is in Moosewood New Classics. I don't have the book with me, but basically the tilipia is enclosed in a foil packet with onions, mushrooms, capers, artichoke hearts, a bit of mustard, lemon juice, and olive oil. It is baked in the oven for about 20 minutes and comes out divinely without any clean up other than throwing away the used foil. Yum. It is especially good over wild rice.

Last time I got tilapia, I sliced it, marinated it and stir-fried it as if it were chicken. Very delicious.

I used this recipe and it was DELICIOUS!!! (Works great with chicken to)
Serve with rice and coleslaw, or cheese grits and sauteed greens.
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 (6-ounce) tilapia or snapper fillets
1 tablespoon vegetable oil, divided
4 lemon wedges
1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a shallow dish. Combine buttermilk and hot sauce in a medium bowl; place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge 1 fillet in flour. Dip in buttermilk mixture; dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Repeat procedure with remaining fillets, flour, buttermilk mixture, and breadcrumb mixture.
2. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 fillets; cook 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and fillets. Serve with lemon wedges.
I think I got it from here, but I don't remember, sorry.
